How the Amish Buy:
The Amish live frugally and hold on to their money. If they can
barter or make it themselves, they don't buy. In the book, Money
Secrets of the Amish, a book on finding true abundance in
simplicity, sharing and saving, Lorilee Craker, a New York Best-
selling author reveals tried and true financial habits of the Amish.
They are a frugal bunch who know how to repurpose, recycle and
reuse, but they also know how to "eat like royalty for a peasan'ts

For example:

  • Amish buy in bulk. Do as the Amish and buy dried grains,
    beans and legumes in bulk. You can store them easily in five
    gallon buckets.
  • Red and white wheat berries: Amish people love to
    bake friendship breads, make their own pizza, and
    cakes and cookies. This all begins with grain and a
    grain-mill. They buy in bulk and use as they need.
  • Milk: If you don't have a cow, buy powdered milk in bulk.
  • Sugar: If you can't grow your own sugar, then you may
    as well stash it in bulk.
